Knitting Update

The knitting needles are flying along at the moment, it is absolutely freezing cold here in Launceston at the moment so it is a great time for knitting. First up is a progress photo of Janelles lacy jumper knitted in Patons Zhivago, you know the one that caused me some embarrasment the other day. My love/hate relationship with lace is on again, I love the look of lace but hate shaping in lace so at the moment all is okay as I am not yet up to the armhole shaping. There will be some grumbling when I reach that stage I am sure but for now it is a nice easy to knit pattern, well for lace that is.

Cabled Shrug is next, what can I say about this pattern other than I love it and can't wait to have it draped over my shoulders. This is being knitted in Bendigo Woollen Mills 12ply Rustic, a gorgeous yarn.

Last but definately not least is the 60's Cabled Jumper, which I found in a really old pattern book from the op shop and it is also being knitted in Bendigo Rustic 12ply in a tweed green colour that is just beautiful. This is my easy peasy take anywhere knit as it requires no concentration really yet has a lovely cable and rib pattern. So that is my knitting projects that I am currently working on, there are a couple in the basket waiting for my attention too but for now these three are my priority.

You projects are looking great, and I love all the colours as well. My kntting has taken a backseat this past week as I've been tired from being back to work. I'm hoping to get at it again this weekend though.

Beautiful projects! Thanks for visiting and helping w/ my pictures. I really like the Proverbs 31 verse -- I had forgotton the wool part!

I can't believe you've come so far with your 60's jumper! The last time I saw was that day at the market. It's coming up really cool.

I'm very impressed with the lace jumper, however I don't envy you one bit making it. Lace and I are like oil and water.

I love the lace jumper. Tried to make some things in the past with lace pattern but I can't concentrate long enough and poof, loose my place. Don't know how you do it you busy person.

Like your cabled jumper too. Nice easy pattern to follow. I like that and I can do cabled!

Best wishes...Bernie

I love your blue lacey jumper. I dont do lace very well. Always end up with some part of the pattern incorrect. Maybe an ambition for 2007. Also love your other jumpers, and I love using Zhivago. Nice and soft, and easy to look after. Cannot wait to see more.

Hi Sharon-

I like the cables but LOVE the lace! The yarn and color really show off the beautiful texture. I can't wait to see its progress.
